The Eclogues


Published October 20, 2008


LibriVox recording of The Eclogues, by Publius Vergilius Maro (aka Virgil).

This book of poems, written between 42 en 39 BC, was a bestseller in ancient Rome, and still holds a fascination today. Held to be divinely inspired not only by the Romans themselves, but by the Medieval Catholic church, The Eclogues is one of the most beloved collections of Latin short poetry. (Summary by Caeristhiona)
The translator of this version is unknown. This recording is done in the form of a dramatic reading: in each eclogue, every character is read by a different Librivox volunteer.
